On May 30, 2017, Humanity in Action Germany held a public lecture at Berlin’s renowned Humboldt University Grimm-Zentrum library in cooperation with New York University Berlin. Law Professor and former John Lewis Fellowship Director Dr. Tanya Washington gave a talk titled “The Trump Effect: Race, Regression & Restoration.”
We welcomed around 100 guests who actively engaged in the Q&A as well as the discussion after the talk. Dr. Washington focused on race relations in the United States, and the socio-cultural silver lining that the election of Donald Trump yielded in this context. The session was moderated by Humanity in Action Senior Fellow Lorenz Narku Laing. It was followed by a networking event that was co-sponsored by NYU Berlin.
We thank Gabriella Etmektsoglou, Director of NYU Berlin, and Sonja Böhme, Team Lead at the Foundation EVZ, for their opening remarks and their support.

Over several centuries, immigrants with few assets were driven by the vertigo of speculation in building a new American society. In the process they stripped Native Americans of their wealth and eagerly and savagely diminished that population.
